Who We Are

Nova is a Black-owned, women-owned company devoted to transforming organizational cultures. Nova works with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) leaders to build equity and achieve meaningful change, no matter where they are on the DEI journey.

Nova’s Core Values
If we want to change behaviors, we have to connect with hearts and minds.  Your workforce needs to understand what we are asking of them and why it matters.
You shouldn’t have to do this alone.  We believe we need to harness your champions, ambassadors and people leaders to help carry forward these initiatives.
Who’s in the room matters.  Representation is important at all levels, which is why Nova staffs all projects with at least 50% women and 50% people of color.
What We Do

Nova provides learning programs, research and data analysis, and ongoing support through strategic consulting to support DEI professionals. We work closely with partners to support high-touch, ongoing programs, and we provide off-the-shelf, train-the-trainer style DEI learning. Here’s how we do it:

Point in Time Learning

Whether a single workshop session or an enterprise-wide program, Nova creates tailored curriculum to ground our learning in the context of your organization. We work with your stakeholders to consider pre-learning messaging, as well as post-learning reinforcements so that your participants are coming into the room in the right frame of mind and leaving the room with tools and actions they can actually use.

Our membership model provides access to our deep bench of experts, ensuring you have the right resources at the right time.
